Property Value

Type Description

The font name.


Use the SpreadsheetFont object properties to specify font characteristics (Color, FontStyle, Size, Script, and so on). Use the Formatting.Font property to access this object.

See the following topics for examples on how to format a cell or cell range, and create or modify a cell style:

The Spreadsheet also allows you to use fonts that are not installed on the current operating system. Refer to this help topic for details: Load and Use Custom Fonts Without Installation on the System.


This example demonstrates how to format cell font characteristics (e.g., font name, size, color, style) by modifying the SpreadsheetFont object accessed via the Formatting.Font property of the Cell object.

// Access the Font object.
SpreadsheetFont cellFont = worksheet.Cells["A1"].Font;
// Set the font name.
cellFont.Name = "Times New Roman";
// Set the font size.
cellFont.Size = 14;
// Set the font color.
cellFont.Color = Color.Blue;
// Format text as bold.
cellFont.Bold = true;
// Set font to be underlined.
cellFont.UnderlineType = UnderlineType.Single;
